Drinking enough water is supposed to be very beneficial. When I was looking up the benefits of staying well hydrated, I came across a lot of lists. "The 5 biggest benefits of sporting a water mustache" "9 ways that being well hydrated attracts men" "11 reasons to marry your water bottle", etc. They went on and on. I kept reading until I got to one that boasted 50+ points, then decided to make my own list.
7 Ways Water Will Rock My World
- Make my skin look younger
- Prevent my lips from getting chapped
- Give me more energy
- Flush toxins out of my system
- Give my organs an easier job
- Boost my metabolism
- Get rid of my irritability
So basically I'm expecting drinking 3 liters of water every day will solve every problem that I have ever had.
Here are my strategies for keeping up this tricky habit that I have failed at so many times before:
1. Write this blog.
I know that I will have to give you all an update at the end of this month. I better follow through with this or you are all going to laugh at me!!
2. Designate a special water bottle as mine
Jason recently bought this pretty little bottle for me.
3. Track my intake
I searched through a lot of different apps for my iphone. There were some cute free ones. TONS of them actually. I finally decided on iDration. Clever eh? It cost me 99 cents (oh the humanity!) but the ease of use and of appealing design of the platform was worth every penny.
4. Set up a reminder system
iDration not only tracks my intake, it also send me push notifications throughout the day to remind me to drink more water.
5. Reward myself with a new water bottle at the end of the month
I think it would be a nice way to reward myself for a job well done.
